Did you know that August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month?
In 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established National Breastfeeding Awareness Month to spread the word and educate women about the positive effects of nursing.
So in honor of the campaign, check out a few of our favorite must-haves for nursing moms:
Motherlove Nipple Cream
This organic nipple cream is made from all-natural herbal ingredients. It will help soothe dry, cracked skin and it’s totally safe for baby – no need to wash it off before nursing.

Want to ease the pain of swollen breasts? Booby Tubes are gel-free breast packs made from an organic cotton shell filled with all-natural flax seed. They can be used warm or cold and fit right inside your bra.

Hygeia Breast Pump
Need to pump on the go? The Hygeia Breast Pump is super portable – not only does it have a rechargeable battery, but the recording feature lets moms capture baby’s sounds to playback and stimulate milk production.

For moms who want to keep their middle covered up while nursing, this strapless camisole is just the ticket. It attaches to any nursing bra, transforming any shirt into a nursing shirt.
